The Local _ Language _ Need Help Finding Rhyming Words!

Posted by: cwray1 20.Feb.2017, 05:22 PM

Hi guys - I'm learning Swedish because my girlfriend is from Sweden and I would like to surprise her with a song. Most of the song would be in English, but I would like to incorporate a little bit of Swedish (probably in the chorus). I want to rhyme with "Hur kan jag göra din dag bättre?" ("How can I make your day better?"), but I do not know anywhere near enough Swedish to know of any rhyming words. Can you think of any words that rhyme with "dag bättre?", that I could use in the line before and would make sense in the context? If I could get a few rhyming words, I might be able to make the whole chorus Swedish.

Thanks!

If you'd like to your girlfriend sjunga

Thanks, apparently nothing rhymes with bättre...Maybe some close rhymes? Or I realign the sentence so there's another word at the end?

You could go with an alliteration...say, perhaps the term bedwetter. Not sure that's gonna help your case.

My suggestion is that you change "Hur kan jag göra din dag bättre" to "Hur kan jag förbättra din dag?" (=How could I improve your day). Or perhaps "Hur kan jag förgylla din dag" (Literally it's "How could I gild your day", but it's used figuratively, like an expression so it's more like "How could I brighten your day" or something like that. It's a lot easier to rhyme on "dag". Or you could even say "Hur kan jag din dag förgylla", if you got a better rhyme with that word, but that way of putting it is less casual, and more like poetic, you would only say it like that in a song or a poem.
